When people tell me it’s to hard to eat healthy or to change their diet I usually tell them one thing. It took me 5 years to get to eating the way I do now… And the one tip I give them: make one small change by adding in something healthy rather than by trying to take anything out. For me the first thing I started doing was just changing my breakfast. From toast and bagels to a green smoothie daily. Once I had my green smoothie I just continued on with my day as I had always done.
